    Three W3-D6 JL's

    This guy has three JL W3 D6's for 200 in a sealed box... would that be better than my two diamond D3 12 DVC 2ohm subs?

    what should i buy?

    I doubt that 3 JL w1 or 0 are gonna outbump some diamond D3 subs. Especcially since you shoudl be pported and these are sealed.
    However the amount of cone area is gonna be the defining factor as well as your final ohm load that the amp see's.
    The only way to really tell is drive over and hook them up. Everything else is just speculation.
    2 ported subs shoudl keep up with 3 sealed though maybe not on bass mechaniks or DJ magic Mike program material.

    they're W3's and they would not only outbump but also sound better then two d3's

    Re: Three W3-D6 JL's

    Also what ohm load would my amp see? If i just drive over there and hook them up, because my KAR amp has two channels (even tho its a mono) how would i do it?

    Re: Three W3-D6 JL's

    # Class D Monobloc
    # 1 Ohm Mono Stable
    # Stable to two ohms stereo
    1 x 350W @ 4 ohms
    1 x 750W @ 2 ohms
    1 x 900W @ 1 ohm
    Fuse: 3 x 30A

    What i don't understand is how does a mono amp have two channels?

    1 ohm FTW! I wish I could find 3 D6 subs. 10" preferably.

    Re: Three W3-D6 JL's

    Your amp is only 1 channel... it may have two sets of terminals and is then bridged internally.... D6 means dual 6 ohm voice coils... so your amp will see a 1 ohm load... You will power them perfectly and the w3 is still one of my favorite woofers... You sure they are dual 6s? Or are you sure they aren't w6-d6?
